Divisional Chief of Prestea Himan Traditional Area in the Prestea Huni-Valley Constituency of the Western Region, Nana Nteboa Prah IV, has made a passionate appeal to the people of Ghana to give the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, all the support that he needs as he aspires to be the flag-bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to the chief, Mr Bagbin with all his contributions to the country has made no mistake in contest the flag-bearer position of the umbrella family.
“He should be encouraged since he has made no mistake to contest the NDC flag-bearer position with the former president and other party members. We know that Hon Bagbin has a good heart in all his life, whatever he has done is for the good of the country,” he noted.
The Himan chief made this observation in a welcome address when Mr Bagbin paid a courtesy call on him at his palace, Sunday, September 23, 2018.
The Nadowli/Kaleo lawmaker had stormed Prestea to interact with the executives from six constituencies and with Prestea Huni-Valley being the host constituency, he decided to pay a courtesy call on the chief and his elders to ask for their blessings and also permit him entry into his jurisdiction.
Nana Nteboa IV speaking further, said he has closely been monitoring the public life of Hon Bagbin and therefore, can conclude that his (Hon Bagbin’s) quest for the flag-bearer position of the Akatamansonians was not a misplaced priority.
He said in the history of the Parliament of Ghana, Hon Bagbin stands tall, re-echoing that he deserves to be President of the Republic considering his numerous contributions to the development of Ghana.
“You can’t erase Hon Bagbin’s name from the history of the Parliament of Ghana. His contributions are enormous. He is also the longest serving Member of the August House.”
